From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #71 (December 2012):

A resuscitated beer, as The Shed brand was purchased from Otter Creek Brewery last year. Expressive from start to finish, more complex than expected. An enjoyable sipper, perhaps a bit too drinkable for its size … brawny at that. Definitely a type of brew most will craver in the cooler months.

STYLE: English Strong Ale
ABV: 7.4%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Hazed rusty brown, thin lacing

SMELL: Biscuity, wild berries, yeast, birch sap, faint caramel, estery

TASTE: Medium body, herbal, mineral, buttery, peppery, black berries, earthy, green peppercorn, alcoholic warmth, bread crust, minty, custard, nutty yeast, herbal drying finish
